Chapter 84.1 Yan Hao: I’ll be there in two days
Sheng Heng was having a mental backlash so no matter how desperately Cheng Wenkang wanted to retrieve the Phantom Beast, he didn’t dare delay, taking Sheng Heng back to the base immediately as soon as Sun Zhu and the others landed.
In the medical room, even after Sheng Heng took the Level 6 sedative that Sun Zhu had brought, his mental backlash wasn’t alleviated much. He still felt an excruciating headache, as if thousands of silver needles were piercing his skull.
“Doctor, why hasn’t boss’s mental backlash eased after taking the Level 6 sedative?” Cheng Wenkang asked anxiously.
The base’s pharmacist was a middle-aged man in his thirties named Kang Ren, a Level 6 pharmacist who had been stationed on the Resource Planet for many years. This was the first time he had encountered such a situation. “What’s this student’s mental energy level?”
“S level.” Cheng Wenkang didn’t dare hide anything.
“S level?!” Kang Ren shouted in shock, his face suddenly turning serious.
“Doctor, what’s going on?” Cheng Wenkang glanced at Sheng Heng who was lying on the bed. For some reason, after being injured this time, Sheng Heng hadn’t fallen into a coma but had remained conscious and although he tried hard to control his emotions, his pale face and trembling body showed clearly that he was in tremendous pain.
“His current state differs from that of someone suffering from the usual mental energy agitation in that he was attacked by the backlash of mental energy when his sea of consciousness was empty, and as this backlash came from the outside, it disrupted his own mental energy fluctuations, causing his mental energy fluctuations to surpass his sea of consciousness’ self-repair threshold. A sedative is almost useless when one’s mental energy fluctuations exceeds the self-repair threshold.” Kang Ren explained.
“Then what should we do?”
“We have to find a way to restore the threshold of his mental energy fluctuations to normal. Only then will the sedative work.” Kang Ren told him.
“Doctor, please think of a solution quickly.” Cheng Wenkang urged.
“It’s not that I don’t want to find a solution, but this student’s mental energy level is S level.” Kang Ren said. “The higher the mental energy level, the higher the threshold and the higher the threshold, the more difficult it is to create a suitable potion. I’m not confident in dealing with someone who has an S level mental energy.”
“Isn’t there a ready-made potion?” Cheng Wenkang asked anxiously.
“There are only a few people with S level mental energy in the entire Federation, what’s more everyone’s mental energy threshold is different. This kind of potion has to be tailored by a pharmacist based on each person’s specific condition and prepared on the spot.” Kang Ren explained.
Cheng Wenkang, recalling Kang Ren’s lack of confidence, found himself at a loss for ideas.
“Go back….. to Capital Star Planet.” Sheng Heng, who had been silent suddenly spoke. His voice was hoarse and low, each word spoken extremely slowly, as if it had taken all of his strength to utter them.
“Boss, how are you feeling?” Cheng Wenkang bent down to hold him.
Sheng Heng shook his head, trying to get up from the bed.
“What are you doing? Lie down!” Rushing over, Kang Ren pressed Sheng Heng back onto the bed, saying anxiously, “How can he make an interstellar voyage in this state? Does he want to die halfway?”
Hearing this, Cheng Wenkang’s face turned pale. Boss had finally managed to obtain a mimetic mech and could become a mech warrior, but now his mental energy…..
“It’s all my fault. If I hadn’t been greedy and tried to catch the Phantom Beast, boss wouldn’t have…..”
“Shut~up!” Sheng Heng snapped in a low voice.
Cheng Wenkang closed his mouth immediately.
“There’s a military base not far from here. We can look for a pharmacist there to see if they have any solutions, but….” Kang Ren hesitated. Given the rarity of S level mental energy in the entire Federation, there were few pharmacists who could create a potion to lower his threshold.
Kang Ren glanced at the young man lying on the hospital bed then ultimately decided not to voice his concerns. Having an S level mental energy should have made him one of the most talented individuals, but now, it seemed to be his downfall.
Suddenly, there was a knock at the door.
Looking up, Cheng Wenkang saw Sima Mingxuan and Yan Fei enter the room. “What are you two doing here?!”
Cheng Wenkang’s tone was harsh. If it wasn’t for the fact that he wouldn’t win, he would have charged at Sima Mingxuan for a fight to the death. It was Sima Mingxuan who had injured Sheng Heng with his mental energy, otherwise even with an empty sea of consciousness, Sheng Heng, who had an S level mental energy wouldn’t have been attacked so easily.
“I’m here to make amends.” Sima Mingxuan said sincerely.
“Amends?” Cheng Wenkang sneered. “How are you going to make amends with boss is in this condition now.?”
When Sheng Heng heard Sima Mingxuan’s voice, he also opened his eyes slightly, looking at the two who had come in.
Noticing Sheng Heng’s gaze, Sima Mingxuan looked at him, saying apologetically, “I’m sorry, it’s my fault. But I didn’t do it on purpose. I was also looking for the Phantom Beast in that forest and had been there for two days already. At that time, I was searching the forest using my mental energy, trying to lure the Phantom Beast out but I didn’t expect to collide with your mental energy. To make matters worse, your mental energy had already been depleted severely at the time.”
Sheng Heng didn’t have the strength to speak, but the irony in his eyes was unmistakable.
“What do you mean by that? Are you trying to shirk responsibility?” Cheng Wenkang said angrily.
“I’m not trying to shirk responsibility; I just want to say that this incident was purely an accident.” Sima Mingxuan explained.
“Whether it was an accident or not, if anything happens to boss, your Sima family won’t be able to escape.” Cheng Wenkang declared.
A cunning glint flashed in Sima Mingxuan’s eyes, but his expression remained calm. “Although the incident was an accident, I’m still partly responsible for Junior Sheng’s injury. I came here to help him heal.”
“Heal? You have a way to cure boss?” Cheng Wenkang didn’t trust Sima Mingxuan, but going by Kang Ren’s words earlier, they didn’t have any other options, so despite his distrust, he couldn’t help but hope.
